When asked what Thanksgiving means to me, other than being thankful for life in general and for the beautiful family and friends that surround me, I really didn’t have an exciting response. Because I do not celebrate Thanksgiving traditionally like most with a turkey feast, I couldn’t even give advice on whether a turkey is better fried or baked!

But this year with all the turmoil our world is faced with these days, to stop and recognize the kindness around you becomes important. Therefore, I want to take this holiday to do just that by recognizing the importance of having not only a good team behind you, but a team that believes in you wholeheartedly.

The OneStrand Team along with Sister-Company ADG brings innovation, integrity, respect, humor, spontaneity, and all around genuine colleagues that I can personally call friends. There is no better feeling than to celebrate Thanksgiving by visiting NYC with my family, and to be thankful for the team that I get to work with on a daily basis.


This team is made up of an incredibly diverse group of people that are changing how one does business in the Technical Information delivery space. We are the ONE’S that are energized to make this happen, together with the partnerships we have made over the years. I thought this didn’t exist, especially not in today’s environment. Having a team that has your back, although they may want you to stop adding to their To Do lists, is priceless. This team support means you do not have to choose between work and your family.  Simply put, at OneStrand work life balance is real and valued.

Unheard of right?!

Well, this is exactly why I felt there was no better day than Thanksgiving to recognize my personal team of colleagues. They each bring something dynamic and special and I am thankful to represent each one of them on a daily basis.

There is no better team than this ONE!

Are you the next ONE to be a part of this team?
